In Django 1.7, STATIC_ROOT is required to use the staticfiles app, while it wasn't in Django 1.6 and earlier.
For instance I'm encountering the following error when running the debug toolbar's test suite.
ImproperlyConfigured: You're using the staticfiles app without having set the STATIC_ROOT setting to a filesystem path.
If this was done on purpose, it should be documented in the release notes.
